However, he did not mention the exact date of the visit.


The two countries also keen to increase the bilateral trade to 2.5 billion pounds ($4 billion) by 2015, he said.


Gilani will also discuss the role of Pakistani migrants in Britain, the war against terror and the current regional situation and Pakistan's efforts for greater trade access in the European Union.
